Antiocidants in Male InfertilityAntioxidants in Male Infertility

This concise, truncated version of Parekattil and Agarwal’s Male Infertility: Contemporary Clinical Approaches, Andrology, ART & Antioxidants is the first resource dedicated solely to antioxidants and male infertility.


Male InfertilityMale Infertility

A ground-breaking contribution to the literature, Male Infertility: Contemporary Clinical Approaches, Andrology, ART & Antioxidants offers a comprehensive review of well-established, current diagnostic and treatment techniques for male infertility.



The purpose of this book is to define the basis of telemicrosurgery, a new discipline at the border of robotics and microsurgery. After the history of robotics and microsurgery, the robots and their instrumentation will be described. The chapters will explain the training in telemicrosurgery and then propose some experimental paradigms.


robotic prostate cancer surgeryRobotic Prostate Cancer Surgery

Da Vinci Prostatectomy is the #1 choice for treatment of localized prostate cancer in the United States, and is rapidly being chosen by more men, as well as their doctors, worldwide. Da Vinci Prostatectomy is a minimally invasive, robotic-assisted surgical procedure that removes the cancerous prostate gland and related structures superior to open surgery.
